LAHORE: Traffic police wardens and citizens exchanged heated words after police took away their cars and motorcycles parked at Ferozpur Road near General Hospital.

Traffic police officials said that they had been ordered by authorities to lift vehicles parked in no parking zones and lock them up at police stations.

Citizens on the other hand said that authorities should first make arrangements for parking of vehicles before making such moves. They urged chief minister Punjab to take notice of their grievances.
